Premier Horgan urges British Columbians to follow federal travel advisory

PREMIER John Horgan on Wednesday urged British Columbians to follow the federal government’s advice to avoid non-essential travel outside the country.

“As the highly transmissible Omicron variant spreads worldwide, this is not a time to take chances,” he added.

Horgan said in a statement: “While this advice undoubtedly disrupts many holiday plans, a fast-changing and unpredictable situation demands we act with caution and prudence. Avoid non-essential travel and follow public health guidelines. Plan your vaccinations and booster shots.

“As we enjoy the holiday season, remember to follow health guidelines and exercise caution. We will get through this so we can once again enjoy all the holiday traditions.”
